The BBC have released an update to the Android BBC iPlayer app that extends the catchup window to 30 days. The BBC recently extended the time programmes are available to watch after broadcast from 7 days to 30 days and the Android app now has this option. You can also change your region setting so you can pick which regional variations you can watch and there are bug fixes.

The Android app is free from the Google Play Store

What’s New

In this latest BBC iPlayer Christmas Cracker:

– Watch for 30 days! You can now watch and download programmes on iPlayer for 30 days after they’re on TV. So you can stretch that festive cheer well into the New Year.

– Going back home for Christmas? You can now change your location in Settings to watch on demand regional programmes via the TV Guide.

– As a Christmas treat, we’ve also got rid of a few more of those small, annoying, green things (bugs, not sprouts).
